I told my dad recently that I was thinking about getting a brand spanking new 2013 OB. He asked his mechanic about what he thought about Subies and the mechanic said some engines are built by Volkswagon, any truth to that? I called BS on my dad's mechanic, but I've seen weirder pairings before. I once had a '93 Isuzu Trooper. Japanese engine mated to a French tranny. Needless to say the tranny sucked :28:.
